The Girl Gets Higher by asunder The Girl Gets Higher by asunder
I LOVE how this one came out! Photo manipulation and painting/airbrushing in photoshop. I like the painting effect is has in areas. Love the colors. I think this was a success!

The old title had nothing to do with this so I changed it. I'm Listening to Ladytron right now, so I'll name it after one of their songs!

"A red cell, a perfect view out of the
Novotel, sat gently listening to
This song, it started over again
And the girl gets higher, the room's on fire
If you want her, let it go, hello,
The sun went in, and it started over again
Linking an encyclopaedia of nothing
In half-written signatures and false names
it started over again
And the girl gets higher, the room's on fire
If you want her, let it go, hello,
The lights went out and it started over again. "

Most of the time. It's easier and more convenient. I'm always around, I can experiment with different expressions myself, etc. I do want to start using other models though! Hopefully soon.
